The Thames Path Challenge

Date: 7/8 September 2019
Location: London
Distance: 25km/50km/75km/100km

The Thames Path Challenge is a wonderful event with an option to suit everyone. You can walk, jog, or run and can choose from four different distances (25km, 50km, 75km or 100km). The route follows the Thames Path from Putney to Henley, with different routes tackling different segments, but all with a great atmosphere and plenty of support along the way!

There is also the option to take on the Thames Bridges Trek which is a 20km route, starting at Putney Bridge and zig zagging across London’s historical bridges until you reach the majestic Tower Bridge. A great opportunity to see London from some of its best vantage points, whilst getting fit and supporting a great cause!
